Griselda's first-lady, Armani Caesar, dropped her 11 track project "The Liz" last Friday. On first listen, I was surprised by how NY sounding it was. Yes, I know she is from Buffalo, NY, but most female rappers are making club music. This album made me want to wear a Foxy Brown fur coat in 100° degree weather, buy some Timberlands, eat rocks with milk for cereal, and say "deadass" at the end of every sentence. This album was created by a New Yorker for New Yorkers; however, you can definitely appreciate the nostalgia NY sound if you're not from the Big Apple.
"The Liz," which is a play on Elizabeth Taylor and WWF wrestling manager Miss Elizabeth is a bar heavy album, so if you are a "rap fan," who doesn't like too many words🙄, then this project is not for you. What I appreciate the most about this album is that it shows a skilled female rapper who isn't watering down her sound to pander to kids. Armani is giving you straight bars, no chaser...DEADASS!
